"Medicine comes with hope: the hope of having a healthy child, the hope of being able to raise your family."
Medsana Medical Clinic caters to the specific needs of children to ensure coming to the doctor is a happy and stress-free experience. We have a dedicated kid’s fun waiting area and friendly kid’s vaccination room.
We also provide vaccinations for older children who may not want to have them done at school. Childhood vaccinations under the Qld Immunisation Schedule are bulk billed at our clinic.
We also provide other vaccines outside the Qld Immunisation Schedule, Meningococcal B/ACWY and travel vaccines.
Childrens' Learning Difficulties
Dr Farana Khan is trained in administering the ADOS for the diagnosis of Autism and the Griffiths III Developmental Assessment for developmental delay.
Early diagnosis ensures parents and teachers have the information to make an informed decision on what treatment plan and educational placement.
Low Sensory Environment
Medsana Medical Clinic can turn down the music and dim the lights in the waiting room to improve your child’s health care experience. If there is adequate sunlight coming through the consulting room windows, we can turn off these lights too. Please speak to reception for further details.
